Wait a minute....

Oh wow. I haven't heard that in a while.

Such an old Farkism.

Awesome. Fb- never gets old.

That's old school.

That reference is so old-school, Socrates was taking notes.

Nice.

Huh. I thought the filter was killing -Fb references these days.

How many years has it been since we last saw an "Fb" in the headline?

As an old-school farker, I approve of this headline.

Ah, the good ole Fb- reference.
Been a while.

At one point it was more common than the 'your mom's a whore' jokes are today.

Can we go back to this one and retire the mom jokes for the next 5 years?

I bow in the presence of your small account number :)

Backstory: Fb- was a Farker that was often quoted as the father whenever an attractive celebrity got pregnant.

3horn was another Farker that signed his posts. I did that for some while but gave up the habit.

These are folks who were giants when I first walked the earth, back in the days of a single tab for all Fark stories, back in the days when Boobies links were spoken of by the great unwashed.

Given that I haven't really done much in the way of trolling, or having a large sheer force of online personality, Fark partying, etc., etc., I suppose I've gotten my ten years pretty stealthily.

But I do like whipping out my account number when some folks who joined in 2003/4 are calling each other newbies.

You really expect us to go thru all those to get the joke?

My guess is that, Fb is facebook here. But interested in knowing the root of the joke, however not that interested that I'd dig thru so many old threads of pregnant women (they scare me, you know)

As long as no one brings back "Jobu", I'm fine with Fb- jokes.

2011-06-22 12:13:14 PM  
eh.

I guess it's one of those 'you had to be there' memes.

I'm drinking an ice cold, refreshing Dr. Pepper right now, so I'm getting a huge kick out of these replies.

In honor of this old school thread, can we get boobies on the main page? An epic boobies thread? Please?

Wow. An Fb reference. My head just flashbacked to 2002.
 
2011-06-22 12:17:40 PM  
Okay, I followed the links, read the history.

Still no explanation as to where the cliche Fb- originally came from and what makes it funny. I get it's a substitution for something else, just don't know what.

Glad you are all enjoying it though.
